Peter Oikarinen's Island Folk: The People of Isle Royale

This enlightening collection of stories and photographs, first published in 1979, focuses on the commerical fishing families who lived on Lake Superior’s remote, rugged, and beautiful Isle Royale before the area became a national park. A new edition released in April 2008 by the University of Minnesota Press offers enhanced format and added chapters (softcover, $16.95).
